Abstract title

The Future of Aging: Practices, Narrations, and Envisioning of Aging in Zagreb's Urban Space

Abstract text

This paper presents an ethnological and cultural-anthropological reflection on aging and envisioning the future of/for the elderly in the context of urban space. The author points to possible approaches to age and aging research, both through narratives and through everyday practices, and urban futures from ethnological and cultural-anthropological perspective. Recent and contemporary narratives and practices of aging in the context of the Croatian capital are ethnographically described in the paper, and sociocultural concepts of future-making, urban development, urban (public) space, and active aging have been used. The author seeks to encourage discussion based on ethnographic research, on more sustainable urban development sensitive to the elderly as a marginalized group.
